It's Time to Start the Slow School Movement

Abstract

This article compares 'fast food' to 'fast schools' - the kind of schools the author describes this country as having. It provides good "food for thought," if you will, as it discusses how a 'slow' approach "offers the intellectual space for scrutiny, argument, and resolution."

"The 'slow food' movement began as a protest against the global proliferation of McDonald's restaurants. Mr. Holt calls for a similar backlash against today's 'hamburger' approach toward education, which emphasizes uniformity, predictability, and measurability of processes and results."
